I was born and raised in Jersey City, New Jersey. However, I attended Cairo University Medical School for three years. I graduated from Rutgers University with honors, as a Biology major. I have also been doing research on stem cells and spinal cord injury at the W.M. Keck Center for Collaborative Neuroscience for three years, and my work is published. I am now on my way to attend medical school in the United States. My years of studying upper-level science classes in medical school have equipped me with the knowledge, skills, and work ethic necessary to maintain my academic success at Rutgers University and graduate with honors. Throughout my life as an undergraduate student, I have always been the one to help my fellow students and use my medical school knowledge to guide others, especially in science classes. I enjoy teaching and helping others who experience the same struggles that I've had to overcome. I have always had great teaching skills, and enjoyed alleviating other students' pressure and stress.
I was born in the United States, but my family and I moved to Egypt when I was 10. I lived in Egypt and studied Arabic there for 5 years of elementary school, 3 years of middle school, and 3 years of secondary school. I scored in the 99th percentile in Arabic on the High School national standardized tests. This test includes Arabic grammar, literature, history, and writing essays.
I studied for the MCAT for years. I recently took the exam and excelled in all sections. I studied The Princeton Review, Kaplan, Exam Crackers, and Berkeley Review textbooks. I also took over 20 practice tests. Through this experience, I developed a day by day study and practice program that uses a variety of resources that I found the most helpful. This program has been proven successful with the students that I have been tutoring over the past year and it helped many of them score in the top 90th percentiles and achieve their goals within months.
If you need any help studying for the MCAT exam, I would love to put all my effort, attention, skills, and knowledge in order to help you reach your target score. I will structure a complete and individualized study schedule for you based on your strengths and weaknesses. I will teach you how to study for the MCAT and help you adhere to the study plan. I will explain concepts to you, help you develop your test-taking, problem-solving, and time-management skills and strategies. I will also be there for you to contact 24/7 and help you control your stress levels because I am well aware of the emotional stress that the exam brings and the drastic improvement that happens when this factor is controlled. Feel free to reach out to me to ask any questions or schedule a lesson.
Dr. Ahmed has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 1 question submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Ahmed is a great tutor. I was nearly 9 months into my MCAT studying and I was still doing poorly on my practice exams. Ahmed helped me review the content more efficiently and effectively and I am scoring higher than I ever did before. He laid out what I needed to do before our next class and quizzed me and answered any questions to ensure I had learned the material well enough. He not only helped with content but also with strategies. Before, I was completely lost on how to do the math on the chem/phys without wasting a lot of time but Ahmed really came through with his math tricks that saved me a lot of time and increased my accuracy. He is very knowledgable about all of the topics that MCAT covers and can answer questions thoroughly while utilizing analogies to make the concept easy to understand. I used every resource out there and nothing helped increase my score like lessons with Ahmed did. He's a great tutor and I definitely recommend starting the MCAT journey with him as your tutor.Ritu, 1 lesson with Dr. Ahmed
He’s a great tutor, I would highly recommend!!
Ahmed is organized, methodical, knowledgeable and supportive. He helped me pinpoint my weaknesses and turn them into strengths. Through strategy, effective study skills and the use of mnemonics he walked me through every chem/phys and bio/biochem concept while thoroughly answering all my questions. In addition to content, Ahmed helped me develop my critical thinking skills to analyze MCAT passage. I was able to increase my score in every section. On top of it all he was there for me every step of the process! He’s a great tutor, I would highly recommend!!Khyla, 6 lessons with Dr. Ahmed
Methodical and Confidence Building Tutor
Ahmed is an incredible tutor, I honestly don't know how I would get through studying for the MCAT without him. Ahmed is methodical in his tutoring approach. He will evaluate where you are in your studying and identify weaknesses in your content review. He is honest with you and encouraging. I am almost three years removed from my pre-med studies but that didn't scare Ahmed away. He broke down what I needed to work on (everything) and has been coaching me through multiple study resources. He will lay out a weekly plan for you and go over the information in a detailed manner. He will then assess you to see what concepts you might have forgotten or do not have a strong grasp on. We never move on to a topic until I feel confident that I understand the material. Ahmed will also key into what is most likely tested on the MCAT and will warn you about ways the test will try to trip you up. Before I started working with Ahmed my review for the MCAT has been all over the place and not very organized. I wasn't confident in myself at all. After working with Ahmed for only a month I am much more confident. We found a study method that works for me and I'm on track for getting the best MCAT score possible. He works with my schedule while holding me accountable for the amount of work I need to get done each week. I highly recommend Ahmed, even though I kind of want to keep him for myself. He's just that good.Imani, 18 lessons with Dr. Ahmed
Knowledgable and efficient MCAT tutor!
Ahmed has helped me create an MCAT study plan which has allowed me to manage my time between working a full time job and studying. He has been efficient at answering questions, providing helpful mnemonics, and giving advice/tips for the exam. His ability to explain concepts is top-notch and his understanding of the material is exceptional. It is definitely helpful working with a tutor who has recently excelled on the exam and is familiar with the skills needed to succeed. I have increased 8 points on my first full length practice exam since my diagnostic and that's with just studying for 3 of the 4 sections thus far.Scott, 11 lessons with Dr. Ahmed
